On particular websites, such as 'Words with Friends' on Facebook and Pandora, I get an error saying that my browser is not supported and I need to upgrade. However, I am running the latest version (3.6.22) that can be run on my machine--I have OS X 10.4.11. In 'Words with Friends' I just click 'ok' and it loads, but I can't get Pandora to override the error. I've had this problem for quite awhile now, and I am pretty certain it is some setting on this machine, because the machine I use at work has the same version of OS X and Firefox and does not have the same problem. I have tried reinstalling Firefox to no avail.

I have an iMac and I am running 10.4.6 I am running Firefox 3.6.26

My problem is, when I go to shut down my computer, Firefox will not quite, so I have to force Firefox to quit. It will not quit when I click on quit.


Before this problem started, Firefox would quit when I clicked on Shut down.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem.

Firefox gets stuck in a loop opening blank tabs when mail link to "NewInventors@intven.com" is clicked, on url http://www.intellectualventures.com/Inventors.aspx

I'm on MAC OS X 4.10.11, and the link goes through MAC Mail, which I never use. I use Firefox. So I looked up how to link Mac OS X mail to Firefox (using WMAP) and set it according to directions.

This problem occurs whether I look the url up on Firefox or quit Firefox and open the url on Safari, and click the link there: either actions start Firefox, and it loops opening new blank tabs. I've tried unplugging my hardwired link from MAC to cable modem, but by then the damage is done.

Quitting and NOT restarting firefox does not clear the problem, until Firefox has done this opening of huge numbers of blank tabs twice - the second time with the modem connection unplugged.

Sounds like either a Firefox bug, an incompatibility with OS X mail (between site and OS X), or incorrect MAC OS X Mail WMAP setup. I don't know how to isolate it any better than that, sorry.

The MAC Mail to Gmail Link via WMAP appears to work normally, in just viewing, reading, and deleting items in my GMAIL incoming mail box.

Sending a test message from myself in OS X mail to Gmail Firefox works fine.

Firefox helps filling in forms (eg webmail inlog) but it also shows a wrong inlog (consisting of inlog name plus password). I want to remove wrong inlog names from Firefox. I already tried to remove all cookies for this site, and deleted the default profile from my Mac applications folder. But still several options for inlog on webmail are given. Where can I find the place where inlog suggestions are kept?

Suddenly, Firefox won't download a file from a clickable icon or web address. This seemed to occur after installing HideMyAss. When I click on a download address, or an icon, the page changes, (as opposed to just starting the download) attempts to load (status bar goes to halfway) and then nothing, it just sits there. If I try to download a torrent file, the same thing occurs, although I can download it using option+click. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Doug

Firefox flashed on my screen this morning telling me to download their new version because the version I have is not able to support security, etc. I attempted to but a new screen said I should download the newest version Firefox has that my Mac OS X V10.4 can handle. My Mac computer was purchased in 2005. A few months ago I went to Apple to get an upgrade to make it a 10.5 or 10.9, but they said my Mac didn't have intel inside so I could not upgrade it. Is my computer now not usable and safe? I would like to download the Firefox version that my Mac can support. Under details below, I do not have a clue what all of those "plug-ins" mean or what I should do.

I used to type a few letters in the location bar and history and suggestions would appear. Now I have to type in every web address I want to go to -- I don't know why the predictive typing and suggestions suddenly stopped working -- I haven't changed any settings. I've checked on Preferences/Privacy and it is set to Remember History and to suggest History and Bookmarks. I saw a similar question on here that suggested looking at the AVG add-on, but I don't have that. The predictive typing was very helpful -- I wish it hadn't disappeared!!! Can you please help?

I use Firefox 3.6.20 on a Macbook. Almost every bookmark I attempt to save will disappear immediately after doing do. Also, when I'm trying to organize my bookmarks into folders, doing so often makes the bookmarks disappear as well, rather than placing them in the selected folder. The action of dropping them in a folder will either multiply the bookmark into three bookmarks, or make it go away completely. How can I fix this?
